Strange August Box Office Weekend Boosted by Holdovers, 'Sin City' Bombs, Top Ten Chart

24 August 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Strange days have found us. Late summer weekends can yield weird results, but rarely like this. Six of the Top Ten positions changed from Friday, which is rare, as two of three new films declined steeply. Meanwhile several of holdovers enjoyed solid jumps. Last week's top two films switched positions, with "Guardians of the Galaxy" (Buena Vista) returning yet again as the top grosser after having been bested by "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (Paramount) for the last two weeks. Those two films are the shining lights of August, but the less-heralded "Let's Be Cops" (Twentieth Century Fox) had a terrific hold--only down 38%-- to take fourth place. And that wasn't the best hold! Lower-budget sleeper success "The Hundred-Foot Journey" (Dreamworks/Buena Vista) fell only 22% in its third weekend. "Journey" has already outgrossed (with higher marketing expense) the summer's other foody hit, "Chef," and looks to build »

Recap: 'Big Brother' Sunday - Nominations and Skittle-Power

17 August 2014 9:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When it comes to surveillance video, it's hard to get more disorienting than transitioning from a LiveStream in Ferguson, Missouri to CBS' voyeuristic "Big Brother" and it saddens me that that's what I find myself doing tonight. Between this unfortunate media juxtaposition and some exhausting travel, I can't say that I'm all that involved with what's going down on Sunday's (August 17) "Big Brother," but the job is the job... So let's watch what happens! 8:03 p.m. Oh right. Derrick and Frankie won Head of Household when we left things on Thursday. Interesting... "Big Brother" Voice-Over Man says that tonight will be the last Battle of the Block of the summer. 8:04 p.m. There are only eight people left in the House and Frankie notes that six of them are in his alliance, which means alliance-mates are going up on the Block. Caleb tells us that Victoria and Donny are the obvious targets, »

Looking back at Johnny Mnemonic

14 August 2014 3:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One of the few big-screen adaptations of William Gibson's sci-fi, Johnny Mnemonic was largely ignored at the box-office. Kyle looks back...

By the time Johnny Mnemonic was released in 1995, screenwriter William Gibson had been writing innovative science fiction for almost 20 years. Since his first short story – the brilliant Fragments Of A Hologram Rose – was published back in 1977, Gibson had been making serious waves in the sci-fi community. He's perhaps most well-known for his game-changing 1984 novel, Neuromancer, a dark neo-noir filled with console-cowboys, sentient AIs and virtual reality – all common elements now, but Gibson's work still stands as a milestone in sci-fi literature. Gibson created the term 'cyberspace' and is seen as one of the forefathers of cyberpunk.

It's weird, then, that his novels and stories never translated to the silver screen before the mid-90s. Gibson himself had taken a pass at Alien 3 (though most of his ideas were quickly disposed of, »

Tina Fey Might Add Mrs. Wolf Of Wall Street To Her New Flick Taliban Shuffle

6 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Australian ingénue Margot Robbie won loads of attention last year as the trophy wife of the titular Wolf of Wall Street. She's already lined up a full slate of follow-ups, but rumor has it her next endeavor could be a political comedy with the one and only Tina Fey. The crew over at Schmoes Know claims to have an insider on the developing Tina Fey vehicle, Taliban Shuffle. The comedy based on the Kim Barker's wartime memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan seems to have rolled into casting the funny lady's co-stars. Reportedly Margot Robbie is a frontrunner for a role alongside the 30 Rock creator/star. No details on what role Robbie might play have been given at this time. Tina Fey will produce and headline Taliban Shuffle. In the film, she's set to portray the book's author Kim Barker, who was sent on »

Why I'm Not Seeing "Lucy"

30 July 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"Lucy" will be discussed soon on the podcast but at least one member of Scarjo-loving Tfe refuses to see it. Here's Matthew Eng to tell you why. - Editor

I don't care if Lucy is every bit the gloriously silly and shamelessly outré action fireworks show that gung-ho summer audiences have made into a "surprise hit." I care even less that Luc Besson has managed to curb his own gonzo cheese-fest tendencies to a running time of less than 90 minutes, compared to the ceaselessly spinning tops and chiseled self-mythologizing of every Christopher Nolan movie post-Insomnia. And, though it's been tempting, I finally don't care that Besson and Co. have seemingly put the newly-rejuvenated Scarlett Johansson (so good in Under the Skin; so great in Don Jon) on a pedestal of full-out Film Goddess proportions, in a genre where movies in which women are front and center and not merely »

Touring the Movies that Influenced 'The Matrix'

22 July 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

You could do something similar to what editor Robert Grigsby Wilson has done here taking a look at Lana and Andy Wachowski's The Matrix and pointing out all the moments in the film influenced by, or paying homage to, other films, but it is nonetheless fascinating to take such a trip through film and in this case several martial arts features, anime and even a speech from Philip K. Dick. I've included the list of films just below the video, give it a look and enjoy. 0:27 - Fist of Legend (1994) 0:38 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993) 0:44 - Fist of Legend (1994) 0:48 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993) 0:53 - Drunken Master (1978) 1:02 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:09 - The Killer (1989) 1:19 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:21 - Iron Monkey (1993) 1:31 - Once Upon A Time In China (1991) 1:36 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:41 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons »

Crazy, Stupid, Love Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa to Helm Taliban Shuffle Starring Tina Fey

1 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Crazy, Stupid, Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are currently at work on the con-man movie Focus starring Will Smith, but they're already lining up a future project with an adaptation of the memoir Taliban Shuffle.  Per THR, Kim Barker's wartime memoir covers her time "as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan, dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture."  Reading this brief description, my mind flashes to a potentially cool mashup of Three Kings and Jarhead, but Taliban Shuffle seems like a fun story with plenty of room for interesting takes. Additionally, Tina Fey has signed on to star, and Robert Carlock, who worked with Fey as a writer on 30 Rock, handled the script.  While this hints at a more comedic bent, it's important to remember that Fey hasn't »

Kevin Costner Circling Ariel Vromen’s Criminal

18 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Costner comeback continues with news that the Academy Award winner is in negotiations to take the lead role in the sci-fi thriller Criminal – currently being developed by Millennium Films. The film would see the actor as an unpredictable and dangerous character, who finds himself in the unusual predicament of being needed for action on the government side of the law. The knowledge and skills of a deceased CIA operative are implanted into his brain, and the shadowy organization asks him to finish the mission.

Criminal has Ariel Vromen attached to helm the project. Having made his first feature film – Simple Lies – in 2005, his most high profile directorial (and co-writing) effort to date has been 2012’s The Iceman – the true story of a contract killer – starring Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer.

Though the plot synopsis perhaps sounds like a Bourne Identity meets Strange Days kind of story, »

David S. Goyer Boards James Cameron’s ‘Fantastic Voyage’

2 May 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Who would you want to direct an action-packed journey around the human body? While I’m tempted to say David Cronenberg, the answer “James Cameron” is probably the more solid proposition and just as well, as his remake of 1966′s Fantastic Voyage has reportedly shifted a little further along the digestive tract with the news that David S. Goyer is on treatment duty.

The story concerns a team of scientists who are miniaturized onto a tiny submarine and despatched into the body of a defected Russian scientist to ensure his survival and obtain his secrets. Richard Fleischer’s original film featured the eclectic casting of Raquel Welch (One Million Years BC) and Donald Pleasence (Halloween) and had the distinction of being novelized by sci-fi master Isaac Asimov (I, Robot). An interesting parallel to Cameron, who hired respected author Orson Scott Card (Ender’S Game) to write up The Abyss back »

Batman Goes Retro in Bruce Timm’s “Strange Days”

14 April 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Animator and producer Bruce Timm hasn’t worked on a Batman animation since 2004, but this year is the Caped Crusader’s 75th anniversary, and DC is making sure we know it by offering all kinds of exclusives and events—among them a black and white, classic-style short by Timm himself: Strange Days.

Check out the length of Batman’s ears. Now that’s 1930s.

To see Timm talk about the development of the short, you can watch this DC “All Access” clip:

Timm co-created the Emmy-winning Batman: The Animated Series, which is still widely believed to be the hero’s best onscreen representation—and I have to agree. It’s the closest I’ve seen to a real Batman comic-in-motion, movies included (sorry, Christopher Nolan), although that might change if somebody just asked Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo to direct a Batman movie.

Watch Bruce Timm’s Batman 75th anniversary short Batman: Strange Days

11 April 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Wednesday Cartoon Network celebrated the 75th anniversary of Bob Kane (and Bill Finger’s) Dark Knight Detective as Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm reunited with the Caped Crusader for a three-minute animated DC Nation short entitled Batman: Strange Days.

Recounting a lost tale from Batman’s past, Strange Days sees The Dark Knight tracking a strange giant to the mysterious lair of one of his longest-serving villains, Dr. Hugo Strange, who made his first appearance way back in Detective Comics #36.

If you missed the short, or you’re not from the States, then fortunately it has now made its way online, and it’s really rather splendid. Take a look for yourself…

First Look at Bruce Timm's Animated Batman Short "Strange Days"

3 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

These images give us our first look at Bruce Timm's animated short "Batman: Strange Days," which is supposed to air on Cartoon Network's DC Nation on April 9th, 2014. Timm produced the short as a part of Batman's 75th anniversary. 

A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious layer of Dr. Hugo Strange.

The short has a very 1940s film noir influence, with black-and-white aesthetics creating an old school crime drama vibe.

This looks like it's going to be a really cool short, and I'm looking forward to watching it.

Who Is Marvel’s Doctor Strange?

22 March 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggath!  If you even remotely recognize this statement, you may be familiar with Marvel’s biggest practitioner of the mystic arts, Dr. Strange.  Dr. Stephen Strange is currently the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe and ruminations have been coming in hard and fast about the good doctor in relation to the Marvel movie landscape.  It would seem at this point, with rumors ranging from Marvel bringing in Johnny Depp to discuss the character to Marvel studios looking at various directors to helm the project, that it’s not a question of if Strange will find himself joining the ranks of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, but when!  Don’t know much about the Master of the Mystic arts? Well strap on your Eye of Agamotto and dig out your Wand of Watoomb from the closet, because Collider has you covered. Hit »
